WASHINGTON, Juno '20. Tho Secretary of
the Treasury, in_?i communication to tho
ffouac, expresses an opinion, based upon
h?B observation of the operation of the
law of 1861, that an additional enactment
authorizing tho resumption by the South?
ern Rtates respectively of the remainder of
the direct tax duo from each, would, in
view of tho present impoverished condition
of their people, prevent much hardship in
individual case?, and save from confisca?
tion the property of many persons against
whom the Government has no grounds of
complaint : while no public interest would
be injuriously affected by tho change. He
states, should this policy be adoptent, the
collection of taxes under the present sys?
tem might and ought to be discontinued,
until?an opportumtv for assumption be
offered. Whether the amount realized
from resales of property bid in for the Go?
vernment should or should not be allowed
to tho States respectively, in computing
tho taxes still due, is a question well de?
serving of consideration, which is submit?
ted without comment.

subjoined article on the. war is from
the London Times\ of the 5th instant :
lt. is with the deepest regret we
announce that the hopes of settling,
by a eonferenee, the ' diffphtes which
now agitate Europe, must be aban?
doned. The Frenok Government
bas telegraphed to our own that iii
con sequence of the persistence of
Austria in imposing conditions which
would make the discussions nugatory,
the conference will not bo held.
! It would, indeed;- be a mockery. to
j cali together the representatives of
j the great powers, on terms which
would necessarily involve their imme?
diate separation. We fear, then, that
? matters stand as they stood three
: weeks siuee, and that it now rests
I with the armed -ppwers to compose
j their disputes by negotiation between
themselves, or to resort to the tinat
arbitrament of war. We cnn only
hope that the former counsel will pre?
vail, but everything must now be
done by the powers themselves, for
tho ?uue?ons of the neutral States
are nt an end.
This decision of the Austrian Em?
peror will be termed by his admirers
firmness, by his enemies perversity.
? We have no desire to judge harshly a
? sovereign who has certainly received
much provocation, but it is to be re
; gretted that Austria should, for the
second ?imo within seven years, seem
to be the cause of a European war.
Tho error of her policy will be proved
by the temper in which her foes will
receive the mows that she has stran?
gled the Conf?rence. Wherever
there is one who wishes her ill,
whether it be in the conclaves of Prus?
sian politics, in the pubhc places of
the Italian cities, or in the house?
holds of her disaffected provinces;
there will be joy when it is told that
mediation is at au end. and that on
Austria the blaine is made to rest. Il
the Emperor had retained an agent
of Count Bismark us his adviser, he
could not more effectually have
served the policy of his opponents.
Now that the Conference Ls a dre..m
of the past, there will IK: many ready
to declare that if it had boen held it
would htive worked wonders. It will
be described as a potent instrument
of reconciliation, - which would cer?
tainly have settled all the difference.

importance to the Conference, suv
so far as it gave the public opinion o
Europe the opportunity of pro
noiincing officially on tho matters ii
dispute, but to appear to reject ami
as it were, to fear this harmless dis?
cussion, diminishes the moral weigh
of any power It will be said tim
the cause of Austria must be ba
when she seems afraid even to liste
to the opinions of disinterested state:
That there should be room for th
accusation is the more to be regrette
since, in the opinion of impartit
men, the cause of Austria might I
i very forcibly defended. In German
she is, or was till a few days ailie?
completely in the right. Assn min
that the Elbe Duchies form part <
the Confederation, she has un i form
demanded that they should be di
posed of in accordance with Germs
public law. The Austrian Goven
mont has been supported by tl
minor States, and by tho publ
opinion of Prussia itself, in the part
has taken, which bas been only to r< si
an indefensible and shamelessaggre
sion. Were the German quest i?
the only one in vol veil in the wa
j t very right thinking man would be (
I the side of Austria. There is, u
happily, the Italian dispute, also, y
even for the holding of Venetia tl
Austrians can present argunien
which it would be difficult for state
men or lawyers to confute. Tin
tenure of the province rests upon
basis of legal right, which they m
well oppose to the aspirations of th?
' opponents. They may say that V

tion as a defensive outwork of t

urge that no equivalent has been
could be offered them; that they will
not take money, and that no territory
on- their frontiers Can compensate
them for the lose-of Ye nit ia, or is in
the power of the Conference to be?
stow, if even it were suitable. Can
they be expected to annex the inde
?endent Servians, the barbarous
fontenegrins, Bosnia, with a large
number of Mahomedans, or the Da?
nubian principalities, which have inst
chosen a ruler for themselves? They
might fairly puzzle any representa?
tive of the neutral powers by simply
asking him what he could propose
that was honorable and j nat. We
have ourselves seen as yet no propo?
sition that deserves a moment's con?
sideration, and -we suspect that no
member of the Conference has been
prepared with a practical scheme. If,
then, Austria had accepted the Con?
ference, she -would have retained her
position as a State standing on the
defensive in support of strict rights,
and assailed for refusing to yield to
what no statesman in Europe could
coll upon her to yield. Sho might
have waited till her adversaries or her
advisers refuted each other by con?
tradictory propositions, and have re?
tired at length to fight or make peace
with her reputation for temperance
and justice reassured.
It is likely now to be far otherwise.
People will say that Austria cannot
resist the temptation her immense
levies present to her. She has three
fourths of a million of men in thc
field. She is, or thinks herself, a full
match for all her present adversaries.
Her population nearly equals theirs,
and she has the middle States of Ger
many, with an army-of more than
150,000 men, favorable to her, and
likely to move in her favor if the war
lasts. In Italy, tho Austrian army,
entrenched in one of the strongest
positions in Europe, may allow the
enemy to exhaust his strength against
the Quadrilateral. In tue North,
Field Marshal "Benedek, the ables!
soldier of the empire, is at the head
of an army which may strike a sud?
den and crushing blow. From thc
frontier of Bohemia, he looks North
ward and Eastward over the plains ol
the Prussian kingdom, and sees nc
invincible obstacle to the capture ol
Berlin or the reconquest of Silesia
Whatever may be in store for tin
Austrians, they are at this moment
convinced that the outbreak of wai
will give thom victory and revenge
aud deliver tho empire forever iron
the designs of its enemies. It is i
thoroughly warliko spirit which ha:
dictated their answer to the neutra
powers, and which may now at am
moment cause the first blow to !><
struck. There is, therefore, nothing
further to be done or said. Thos<
who choose war must be left to wii
or lose by war. But, ii there be stil
prudence at Vienna, the Empero
will abstain from offensive operation
on both frontiers of his dominions
The anger of the Court and arm;
burns fiercest against Prussia, o
rather against the Prussian Covern
ment, for such is the hatred of th
war among large numbers of th
Prussian people, that they may b
looked upon as moro on the side c
Francis Joseph than of King Wilban:
It is too probable that Austria wi
seek to strike a heavy blow at once
conscious that no one is likely to ir
terfere in defence of her Norther
adversary. But with such a blow, a
hopes of peace vanish, and Prussi:
with all her legions, is brought int
the field. There is au additional rei
son why the Austrians should kee
on thc defensive in Italy. It is n(
only, as far as we can judge, betti
strategy, but there are political re:
sons for it. An offensive campaig
could hardly fail to invite the inte
ference of the French. Napolec
could not see with indifference tl
Austrians again in possession <
Milan. Although the French aro
has little desire for another war wit
Austria, and although, if it mu
tight, it would rather find anoth
foe, yet the reconquest of any part
Italy would assuredly bring it aga
into tho field.

I NEWBERRY HERAIxD---CARD.
BY the til.- of Monday morning, 18th
instant, the presses, together with
j almost the whole of our types, &c, were
I consuim-d, and our office mide a complete
wreck. The publication of the Herald is,
therefore, suspended, but only for a short
time, we trust, by the loan -of a small
press and a few type from a kind friend,
together with a few odds and ends fortu?
nately saved, we will be able in a few dava
. to issue a small sheet foi temporary pur
, poses, lu tin; meantime, the utmost exer
I tion will be made to procure a new and
; complete outfit in presses and type in the
j shortest possible tune, when we will be
enabled to resume a full publication of our
psper. Wc trust that our short suspen
i sion and unfortunate failure to supply om
patrons will not cause them to feel a loss
or interest, but rather an increase of zeal
to aid us by their influence to recover from
?0 serions a lons. Respectfully.
